Crowns & Bridges

When you have damaged teeth, you just don’t feel good about yourself. Even if you’re not experiencing discomfort, it’s hard not to think about the toll that unhealthy teeth are taking on your oral health and your self-confidence.

At Coolican Dental Center, we offer the options you need to restore damaged teeth, protect your oral health, and restore your confidence. We provide beautiful, durable dental restorations like crowns and bridges that are customized to look natural and last for many years.

Restore Function with Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are needed to restore a tooth that has been damaged by decay, disease, or dental trauma. You may have heard crowns referred to as “caps,” which is appropriate because they surround your tooth to strengthen and protect it from further damage. There are several situations where we may recommend placement of a dental crown, these situations include:

  • Filling a large tooth cavity or following root canal therapy
  • Repairing teeth with cracks or other damage
  • Building up poorly shaped or misaligned teeth
  • Concealing severely stained or discolored teeth
  • Restoring a dental implant

Using his advanced skill and training, Dr.Coolican creates durable crowns that look natural and enhance your beautiful smile.

Bridges Replace Missing Teeth

A dental bridge is used to fill the empty space left when a tooth is lost. Bridges are designed with an artificial tooth that is secured to adjacent teeth with dental crowns.

The loss of just one tooth can lead to a number of oral health problems. If you have a missing tooth that’s not replaced, surrounding teeth can drift out of place, resulting in misaligned teeth and an altered dental bite.
We use dental bridges to effectively solve a number of problems:

  • Fill an empty space left by a missing tooth
  • Prevent movement and shifting of teeth
  • Provide a permanent alternative to a removable partial denture

A well-made dental bridge attaches securely to existing teeth, making it very stable. In certain situations, we may recommend a dental implant to support the bridge for the ultimate strength and functionality.

We Deliver Outstanding Results

We understand that having any type of dental restoration placed is a big investment of time and money on your part. We want you to be completely happy with the outcome because, with proper care, your new crown or bridge will last for many years.
